Course reserves are books, articles, DVDs, and other items placed on reserve by faculty or academic departments for student use. These are usually high demand or required reading material. Course reserves are located at the Circulation Desk and have short circulation periods.
Faculty, who wish to place items on reserve, should bring the items to the Circulation Desk and fill-in the appropriate form.
Please bring to the library material to be placed on reserve at least three (3) days before you assign it to your students. This will give us enough time to recall any checked out items.
You will need to submit a separate Course Reserves Request Form for each item you want to place on reserve. When completing this form please observe the following:
For photocopies of book chapters or journal articles, the library needs at least one copy for use in the Library (2-hour loan). An additional copy may be added for 2-day loan.
Material in Greek needs to be cleared through the department heads.
Due to copyright restrictions:
At the end of each term, you will receive a list with all items on reserve under your name. Please indicate whether items should be kept on reserve for the following term, otherwise, your material will be removed.
Articles and personal copies of books may be kept on reserve for students taking re-sit exams only after special arrangement. Library copies must be reshelved after the end of the term.
You will be asked to collect your withdrawn reserve items by a certain date; anything not claimed by that date may be discarded.
